Very Easy Interview

Intern Interview


I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority in May 2013.

Interview Details – Very informal hiring process. After several emails from HR, I got a phone interview with the department manager. No tricky questions, just a few things on my resume.They cares more about your personality rather than technical things. Got a phone call to offer me that intern position about 1 hour later. BTW, prepare for an abnormally long background-checking- period.

Very Difficult Interview

Regulatory Government Relations Program Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority

Interview Details – I applied online for a position that I thought had an extremely detailed application. It consisted of eleven essay questions about my qualifications and ethics. MWAA has had huge ethic violations in the past so they are very big about vetting candidates.

It took me about a good week to assemble my application and I submitted it shorty after. About three days later I received the most breathtakingly worst rejection letter ever written. I have about four years of work experience as well as a graduate degree and my qualifications certainly meet the minimum required in the job posting. The rejection letter came across as if I offended the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority by my application. Well see for yourself because the rejection letter is too good not to share….

Dear _______,

Thank you for your interest and efforts in applying for the position of Federal and Regulatory Government Relations Program Representative.

After careful consideration of all the applications, only those candidates whose experience best meets or exceeds the qualification requirements for the position as described in the vacancy announcement were selected for further consideration. Unfortunately, your particular skill set does not represent the best fit for this position.

We appreciate your interest in employment with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority and encourage you to apply for other positions for which you are qualified.
